I wanted to start one last year, but the options had my head spinning. (Here's a link to a quick Google search so you can see what I mean!) I finally decided to take the plunge this year and ended up working on TWO!
The first starts with October 17, 1997, which is the day I married. Rather than using all the colors, I knew I wanted to keep it simple in whites, grays, and blacks as that matches our decor. I also LOVE doing circles, so I knew how I wanted it to look. Each circle with the square outline will ultimately represent 30-31 days.
Now this, combined with my goal of creating a new pattern each month for my shop AND getting ready for trade shows later in the year, should have been plenty. BUT NO!
I'm a member of a Temperature Blanket Group on Facebook and one of the members posted a blanket that was TO DIE FOR! She did an hourly temperature blanket. Basically she did 10 stitches for each hour of the day for a total of 240 stitches in each row. Based on how her blanket turned out I knew I had to do one too. Here's my colorway and progress pictures as of end of January.
So, have you tried one of these? Let me see your pictures! Or, if you are interesting in learning more about the Facebook group put a comment below and I'll share the info.
